NECA Toys, who lost the license to produce Godzilla figures, had their last two pieces of merchandise unveiled online in new images and listings.
The first is the Godzilla 1989 Biollante Bile figure inspired by when Toho’s flagship character fought the plant-based monster that harbors his DNA during his Heisei reign.
The two genetic relatives squared off in Godzilla vs. Biollante, the second film in the Heisei series. In the climactic final battle, Biollante took a deadly, towering form that managed to pierce Godzilla’s hands and spewed green bile or “acid sap” from her crocodilian mouth.
The result was almost unnoticeable in the film but NECA’s paint job brings it out in spectacular detail that makes it look like the big guy had a run-in with either Slimer or a huge tank of Mutagen.
See for yourself:
Now have a better look at the box art adorned with promo images of the film:
Amazon has a listing for the above toy that ships through subsidiary CN.Bricks for a price of $69.99. The product description reads:
“NECA continues to celebrate Godzilla, the most famous kaiju in the world in action figure form! This version of the beloved monster is based on its appearance in the 1989 film, Godzilla vs Biollante. The figure measures 6 tall and 12 long from head to tail. It features over 30 points of articulation, including an articulated tail!”
There are a few inconsistencies with that listing, namely Biollante is referred to as “Biolandi” and the figure is measured at 7 inches in the heading but then at 6 in. within the description.
That and it doesn’t seem like the figure ships yet.
Next is the Godzilla 2003 Hyper Maser Blast inspired by the Goji design in Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. – the only direct sequel in the Millennium series. Godzilla does battle with Mothra and an upgraded Kiryu Mechagodzilla built with the skeleton of the original Gojira killed by the Oxygen Destroyer.
Maser is an acronym for “Microwave Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation” and a reference to the satellite-dish cannons that appear in numerous Godzilla movies.
The weapons made their debut in the non-Godzilla kaiju film War of the Gargantuas but became a staple later in the arsenal of G-Force. In perhaps their most famous use, Maser Cannons shot the freeze rays that cooled a burning Godzilla down and felled Destoroyah in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.
In Tokyo S.O.S., the Japanese military arm rebuilding Mecha-G, AMF, could not repair the giant freezing gun in Kiryu’s chest in time; so they replaced it with the grandiloquently named “Triple Hyper Maser Cannon.”

The site also says the items will be available this September as Target exclusives in America but adds that is an unconfirmed rumor.
NECA’s Godzilla license expires this week though all their figures will be available while supplies, which are limited, last. They are going fast so get yours today.
